Welcome to the autumn edition of the e-publishing quarterly from Artmedia for 2003. This newsletter now reaches over 8,000 writers, publishers, bookshops, libraries and media-smiths in Australia, New Zealand, America, Canada and worldwide.
Relaxing the frequency of this publication to a quarterly has paid off, in a huge selection of networking items, and a paid feature in
this issue, covering our costs. ( Just Aus$50 to feature here ).
Our feature is a major retrospective showing at Canberra's National Portrait Gallery of photographer Lewis Morley's work,
together with information on the DVD which is available here to artmedia subscribers.
Considered one of the significant voices of 1960's London, Lewis Morley took some of the singular iconic images of this period, plus a sampling of fringe actors, musicians, and artists, including Barry Humphries, and, more recently, Peter Carey. The DVD has Lewis discussing the background to some of these sessions.
We also feature some readings from my book, Believers in Love, and invite subscribers to my next reading in New York, on Sunday June 1st, 5pm to 7pm, Tribes Gallery Garden, 285 E. 3rd St., 2nd flr - between Aves C & D. More information below.
In the networking we carry applications for the Poets On Wheels tour of NSW, and the State Library of Victoria Creative Fellowships, both of which close in a couple of days, so be quick.
We also have a multimedia theme, with information on the Fasttrack Film School, run by GuerrillaVision in Penrith, Sydney, and an on-line content portal for independent film and music, and on the upcoming Melbourne digital arts and culture conference.
We aim to provide an avenue of communication for the growing electronic publishing community worldwide, so please send us information for inclusion in this newsletter. Details of our web-site and newsletter advertising deals are also at the bottom of this page. Please also forward this to somebody else who may be interested.

"Australia's best-known poetry touring project is up and running again, this time exploring western New South Wales by train. One of the previous poets says, "Irrespective of whether you're 'up-and-coming' or have just had your 30th book published, these tours are an invaluable once-in-a-lifetime experience. Go for it!" For a week around the end of October, the poets will be performing and running workshops in a range of venues from pubs to schools. You'll learn a lot, sell books, be happy and exhausted. Applicants will need to: have some experience in reading and workshopping, be flexible, have an ABN, and be a member of the Poets Union ( you can join at the same time you apply ) The Poets Union actively encourages diversity -- regional, stylistic, gender and professional development stage. Last year, none of those chosen came from Sydney. Those who have already been on a POW tour are ineligible to apply. You will be paid $850, have all NSW train travel plus "on tour" accommodation paid. Please send a CV detailing relevant experience, along with five pages of sample poetry to: Poets Union, P.O. Box 91, Balmain 2041, Australia. Applications must be received by 30th April." Les Wicks email@example.com
